Day 70: A perfect weekend

Hey look at that, I promised you’d see me today and here I am!

Granted, it’s already after my bedtime (because I’m an old lady), so this will probably be short and sweet, but still. Hi!

This weekend was what I like to call the perfect grown up weekend. What does that mean exactly?

Remember how when you were a kid, all you wanted to do was sleep in, eat pizza and do whatever you wanted all day? That. This weekend was full of that.

You see, Darrell and I have a tendency to over-schedule ourselves. We love our friends and our families and we fill nearly every weekend with running around town or across state lines to see them. This weekend, in fact, we’d planned on heading to King’s Island with Darrell’s parents, but when that fell through we found ourselves with a completely obligation free weekend.

And it was glorious.

We slept in (until like, 8:30!), went out for coffee & pastries for breakfast, grabbed pizza by the slice for lunch and had a simple and delicious dinner of hot ham sandwiches and tomato soup for dinner. It was so beautifully simple, I could barely believe we actually managed to just go with the flow for an entire day.

Today was much of the same, and I’m so happy that I was able to actually relax, recenter, and rediscover what it’s like to live without a plan, even if it was only for 48 hours.

Tomorrow starts off a new week and I’m more excited to get back to ‘work’ than ever. I think this whole, weekend of freedom, thing could really start becoming a habit.

Hope you had a great weekend!


Day 26: Downright shameful

Looks like I officially let you down, folks. That was two, count ’em – two!, days in a row without sticking to my 100-day promise.

Man, I’m sort of bad about this.

Anyway, even with as shameful of a record of mine the last few days, I don’t have the energy or wherewithal to even put together a decent post tonight.

I know. Awful. Double shameful. Horrendous. But hey, sometimes the weekend is worth living enough you forget to take time to tell about it.

Tomorrow morning, friends, I promise to catch you up. Until then, the only thing I’m catching up on is some much needed sleep.

Adios por la manana.
